MedActive provides comprehensive oral care whichincludes continuous oral relief for patient-centeredintegrated care pathways. “ Taking the appropriate efforts to improve oral and dental care for nursing home residents could have a significant impact not only on quality of life for nursing facility residents, but also a meaningful impact on downstream medical costs for the health care system by preventing hospitalizations and death resulting from medical care needs arising out of poor oral and dental care. ” PAGE 10 OF 23
  12. 12. Dentition problems can resultin malnutrition “ Patients with painful dentition eat less, and if the patient is demented at baseline, the communication of the painful condition is often missed by care providers. Dentition problems along with the normal loss of the sense of smell accompanied with aging can result in signficantly reduced caloric intakes. Malnutrition frequently leads to immunocompromise and this puts individuals at risk for a whole host of opportunistic infections such as urinary tract infections and pneumonia, both of which are common primary diagnoses for nursing home patients admitted to acute ” care centers.

  14. 14. FactsBrandsFour Approximately 300,000 cases of ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) are reported annually, associated with increased morbidity and mortality, and costs up to $50,000 per case.1 In a 2008 study in an acute care facility with 4 critical care units, the implementation of a q4 oral care protocol costing $21.35/day resulted in an annual savings of more than $7,722.1 The January 2012 issue of the JADA reported that patients with diabetes were one third less likely to visit an emergency department or be hospitalized for the disease when regular dental care was received.2 Undiagnosed dental and oral problems could be a leading cause of malnutrition in elderly people – the problem may be exacerbated by a failure of residential and nursing homes to ensure residents receive proper basic oral care. 3 Patients on dialysis often feel thirsty, but are instructed to control their fluid intake. These patients are constantly looking for a way to relieve their dry mouth and satisfy their thirst.4 1 Killer, Harriet S., RN, BSA, CIC, CPA & Tara Haines, RN, BSN.
